Q.

How do we get affordable conveyancing?

A.

Confusion over this matter catches out many buyers, and can leave them paying far more in conveyancing fees than they budgeted. Many property lawyers advertise cheap conveyancing quotes, but additional charges are often hiding in the terms and conditions that buyers often do not check. Any fees included in terms of engagement should be fair and only come into force where the lawyer must complete additional work on your behalf, which could not be anticipated at the start of the process. Homeward Legal quotes are not estimates, and offer a clear statement of your legal fees for a standard conveyancing transaction.

Q.

What can a Alresford conveyancing solicitor recommend if the maisonette I want to buy is inside a Winchester planning authority conservation area which has unlawful PVC windows fitted to it?

A.

Winchester council Requisition for search and Official Certificate of Search conducted by the solicitor in the process of the conveyancing will establish whether the property is in a conservation area and any evidence of council approval for additions to the property will be requested. If no appropriate consents be supplied your solicitor will advise you of the alternatives which include purchasing an indemnity insurance or seeking retrospective approval from Winchester planning authority.

Q.

How do we bypass paying out for stamp duty?

A.

Stamp Duty Land Tax is usually payable for residential property priced at over £125,000. We firmly advise against any form of stamp duty mitigation. These schemes are often uneconomical and HMRC may challenge a scheme up to six

years later. There have been a small number of legitimate initiatives, however, such as disadvantaged area relief. A conveyancing solicitor should confirm whether you are eligible.

Q.

The internet is full of collections of helpful manuals on the subject of by passing the solicitor. Do I actually have to use conveyancer in Alresford ?

Moreover solicitors are required to carry the applicable insurance cover to safeguard you in the event of negligence.
